Local Bavarian Cuisine at Restaurant Gasthof Fraundorfer

For a local eating experience, the Gasthof Frandorfer is a part show, part dinner. Locals & tourists flock so make sure to make a reservation at one of the big tables for an evening of song, dance and large plates of local meat. We came on a Father’s Day in Germany and had a very wild, Bavarian time.
